    Beautiful office. Fantastic benefits and great location. Onsite company gym, café that serves breakfast and lunch daily.

    Cons

    none I can think of.. that is pretty incredible.

    Advice to Management

    continue to engage with all levels of employees with clear direction and path to succeed with company.

    I have been working at Liberty Global as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Where to begin--so many great things about the company, the leadership, and the office. Great company culture. Executives are fully engaged with the employees and seem to take a real interest in employee welfare. Even as an intern, I feel as if everyone I work for is vested in my success. It is a great feeling.

    Cons

    None so far. I guess better pay, but I am paid a fair wage so I can't really complain.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Engage employees, keep up the benefits (cafeteria, gym, etc.).

    Pros

    Very Nice company to work for.

    Cons

    Salary kind of low also organisation needs a lot with capital L work

    Advice to Management

    Re- Reorganise (double Re)...company has more layers than an onion. A lot of them have very low value but cause extra work and time. Get ride of those huge amounts and ridiculous VP's!!!

    Management that care about you

    Due to the journey that we are on sometimes things can be incredibly fast paced, but the business is maturing and with that comes processes, systems and people that know how to lead.

    Great work environment, providing a very good work/life balance and both career and growth opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing to add here.

    Pros

    Upon arrival you understand that everything has been thought off in terms of making sure the employee feels at home and comfortable. A great work environement where everyone is very helpful and where management supports you and also trust that you will do the job to the best of your ability.
    Amazing location, amazing offices, great people and fantasit career opportunities.

    Cons

    With the legacy of being a traditional M&A growth orientated business, the company could do with some improvement in terms of systems and admin but having reached a certain business maturity, LG is currently working towards a more strategic alignement.

    Advice to Management

    - Consolidates and communicates the Liberty Global Values.
    - GIve exposure to who's doind what within the company, job shadowing to understand the different priorities.
    - Accentuate external PR communications to drive organisational pride

    Pros

    Een internationale organisatie, erg dynamisch, kansen om te groeien en te leren, betaalt goed, doet moeite om personeel te behouden. Fijne faciliteiten om te werken. Groeiende positie in de markt, onwaarschijnlijk dat ze spoedig failliet gaan.

    Cons

    Lijkt soms een beetje conservatief. De behoefte aan het nemen van snelle beslissingen leidt tot enige gekte. Het beleid kan slecht zijn, maar ik denk niet slechter dan andere bedrijven van vergelijkbare omvang.

    Advice to Management

    Graag minder vriendjespolitiek.

    Pros

    Het is het type bedrijf dat groot genoeg is om elke IT carrière achterna te jagen die je wilt. Vertegenwoordigt het hoofdkwartier van Europese operaties. Als je goed bent, wordt dat waargenomen en beloond.

    Cons

    Zou meer het accent kunnen leggen op personeelsontwikkelingen, maar het is een weg die is ingeslagen.. en stappen zijn al genomen in deze richting. Dit met het oog op de vergelijking met werken
    in de IT consultancy tak, waar meer aandacht voor dit onderwerp is.
